The Martial 'addiction' began at an early age for Beko, attending a Judo summer course as a child. This passion continued on through teenage years and into adulthood, further fuelled like so many by the Bruce Lee films and the genre of late night Kungfu movies from production companies such as Golden Harvest and Shaw Brothers!
Aside from teaching and running women's self defence courses for local councils, the training also led to another career, working for over 10 years as a night club door supervisor or "bouncer" as they were called then. He also went on to train in "close protection" and is certified with the International Bodyguard Union (IBU).
Sensei Beko's Martial Arts background includes; Five Ancestors Kungfu, Shotokan Karate, Nam Yang Kungfu (Southern Shaolin), Renshinkai Karate, I-Chi Chun Kungfu (18 golden classics), Taekwondo, Wu Shu Kwan, Kateda, Kickboxing, Capoeira, Tai Chi Chuan and of course... Budokon®.
